Regional Forecast for Orkney & Shetland

Headline:

Some fog overnight, but mainly dry. Spell of rain Saturday.

This Evening and Tonight:

Some clear spells over Orkney at first, but cloudy and rather murky with patchy rain over Shetland and spreading into Orkney for a time. Becoming mostly dry, but cloudy overnight and rain will spread into Orkney later. Strengthening southeasterly winds. Minimum temperature 9 °C.

Saturday:

Rain over Orkney will push into Shetland by the afternoon but drier and brighter conditions will follow across Orkney. Strong or gale force southeasterly winds easing a touch over Orkney. Maximum temperature 13 °C.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Bright spells and scattered showers on Sunday and lighter winds. Changeable on Monday and Tuesday with rain or showers and brisk southwesterly winds at times

Updated: 15:16 on Fri 20 Oct 2017 BST

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Turning wet and windy from the west.

This Evening and Tonight:

Evening rain in the west moving quickly eastwards, clearing most parts by dawn. Clearer skies and showers will follow on, with most of the showers in the west. Gales developing in western and southern coastal areas of England and Wales.

Saturday:

Mainly dry to start in the north and east. Otherwise a day of frequent and at times squally showers, with gales developing quite widely in the west and south.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Gradually becoming less windy on Sunday, but remaining showery. Staying unsettled next week, with milder conditions and rain at times in the south and cooler, showery weather in the north.

Updated: 14:31 on Fri 20 Oct 2017 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 25 Oct 2017 to Friday 3 Nov 2017:

A little rain possible at first in the south on Wednesday, but this tending to peter out, leaving more in the way of drier weather for much of the UK, compared to the start of the week. Temperatures will also be on the warm side, with some mild nights too. Through next weekend, a more unsettled theme seems likely, especially in the northwest, where strong winds will bring a mixture of rain followed by brighter, showery interludes. Further southeast it should remain drier, though some rain is possible here too. Into early November, confidence in the forecast becomes very low, with a changeable theme and near average temperatures seeming most likely. Northern areas look most likely to see further wind and rain at times, with drier conditions in the south.

UK Outlook for Saturday 4 Nov 2017 to Saturday 18 Nov 2017:

Confidence in the forecast during this period is very low. However, after a changeable start with near average temperatures, there is an increasing chance of more prolonged settled spells developing by the end of the first week of November, which may continue into mid month, especially in the south. This would lead to an increased chance of frost and fog overnight. However, northern areas could hold onto more in the way of wind and rain at times. Temperatures should stay mostly near or perhaps slightly above average, although probably dipping to below average in any more settled spells.
